Fabulous Find Friday!

T-8 hours until the weekend!! Woo-stinkin'-hoo!! I am looking forward to a bit of relaxation and some serious downtime. I have 2 magazines sitting on my coffee table that have come in in the last 2 weeks that I haven't touched and a new book that I am 2 chapters into that I cannot wait to read more.

We get 4 magazines at our house. I get Cooking Light and Southern Living and Dave gets ESPN the Magazine and we collectively get Texas Monthly. Although Mike Leach is on the cover of this month's issue (Texas Monthly) wearing a Pirate's eye patch so I was less than excited and Dave was the first one to the mailbox for 2 weeks. I haven't been able to flip through that one yet because he has it on lock down until he has memorized every page. Ahhh football season in Texas. There aren't many things sweeter.

But seriously, how fun is it when you know you're going to get mail once a month? Or once a week even?? I love, love, love getting mail and I know that with my magazine subscriptions there will be at least 2 days a month where I will be elated to head to the mailbox. Until about 8 months ago I got US Weekly. That meant I got something every week! I also used to get InStyle but I realized there were 2 years worth of unread magazines in my "magazine basket". Not because I don't like the mag....I do. I just never found the time to flip through it and they were stacking up fast! So now I'm faithful to only 2. And between those 2 I get amazing recipes and fun decorating ideas for all seasons. I have also found so many places I want to visit because of Southern Living. And when/if we ever get to go to those fabulous cities I will know all the best restaurants to try!

You can imagine my surprise and excitement when I saw that through tomorrow at 11:59pm you can subscribe to Southern Living for only $5!!! And those of you who are already subscribing, you are not to be left out. You can renew your current subscription for the same price. Keep 'em comin'!!

Although that is the best deal that I found here are a few other goodies...

I think your mailbox just got happier!!

Even though I currently keep up with zero of the (way too many) mag subscriptions I already get... I gave in a couple days ago to the $5 SL deal and got it, too! Both kids are in bed... maybe I should try to flip thru 1 of them! :)

In this wonderful life... said...

these are GREAT prices! Did Amazon email you with the deals? I clicked them but the prices went back up so I guess I missed the window! :(
